Welcome to the 18th Annual Parade of Homes™!

 A welcome message from Johnny Salinas, 2015 Parade of Homes™

Chairperson & LBA President-Elect

The 18th Annual Parade of Homes™ is proudly presented by the Laredo Builders Association (LBA).  Our builders will be showcasing eleven (11) homes in the following subdivisions: D & J Alexander, San Isidro-La Paz, & Los Encinos, Quail Run at Plantation, JSJ Estates, and the Backwoods of Tiara. Access to the Parade is easy and you can start at any home you like. Take the time this weekend to see ALL the homes and you could win BIG with major prizes on our Parade tickets this year!

The LBA has worked very hard to make this the most successful Parade ever!  Each builder has worked for months to make their homes sparkle and shine.  You will find a variety of exterior designs and the interiors are full of surprises with marble, granite, deco ceilings, dream kitchens and luxurious master suites.  The artists and craftsmen who worked on these homes are to be commended for their attention to detail.

As chairperson for this year’s Parade, I want to thank all of the LBA members and volunteers who gave so unselfishly of their time.  Members of the LBA know that it takes a lot of work to put on such a big event.  We have been planning since last year and we are proud to show Laredo what we can do when we work together.

Tickets for this year’s Parade of Homes are $5.00 each and can be purchased at any Parade Home, at Lowe’s, Dr. Ikes, from any LBA Member, or at the LBA Office at 201 W. Hillside, #3.  Children under 12 welcomed free when accompanied by an adult.
